East Greenland: Wild Shores of the High Arctic - Endurance
This expedition visits extremely remote areas of Greenland, plus villages and stunning landscapes in Iceland and Norway. Travel there with an expert operator and National Geographic-level guiding.
The Arctic: Drink It In
Greenland’s eastern coast is flanked by thousands of icebergs calved from the country’s massive ice sheet. Here, toward summer’s end when the sea ice opens, we venture into the largest national park in the world—Northeast Greenland National Park—to spot polar bears, musk oxen, arctic hare, and more. In this remote Arctic paradise where animals outnumber humans, go hiking with naturalists on the vast tundra, glide in a kayak through pristine fjords, and take in dramatic mountain views at every turn. There’s also a possibility of seeing the spectacular Northern Lights along Greenland and Iceland at this time of year. Plus, explore with time to linger in Norway’s fjords of legendary beauty at Tysfjord and in the Lofoten Islands.
- • Call at the seldom-visited Jan Mayen Island, where the only residents man a remote weather outpost and have this northernmost volcano all to themselves.
•Visit Iceland’s colorful villages to see contemporary life, hike over geologically recent volcanic flows, and soak in the country’s iconic hot springs.
•For a truly in-depth Arctic experience that gives you a taste of Greenlandic villages and highly remote wildlife, plus highlights of both the Norwegian Fjords and Iceland, this expedition is an excellent choice.
